Critic Reviews for The Wannabe

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (5)

  • Mr. Piazza offers a persuasive portrait of decline, but it is the crumbling beauty and flailing hopes of Rose that resonate. Ms. Arquette comprehends the character inside and out, and her aim is true.

  • The mix of callous humor and romantic doom doesn't always hold up, but in its best moments, "The Wannabe" finds real spikiness in the pitfalls of anti-hero worship.

    December 3, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Few films are better titled than The Wannabe, a portrait of a Bronx kid who would have done anything to be part of the mob world he knew from the movies.

    April 27, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The Wannabe is too derivative for any insight, offering little more than tired tropes and bad accents.

    December 9, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/10 | Full Review…
  • Its taste in antiheroes doesn't inspire fascination, just a desire to see a different movie.

    December 5, 2015 | Rating: D | Full Review…
  • The film is less a revisionist take on the circumstances of John Gotti's 1992 indictment than a tedious love child of Bonnie and Clyde and Goodfellas.
